No, We Don't Have The Swine Flu!

In fact, we'd never even heard of it until we got back from our honeymoon in Cozumel.

We had a wonderful week, with lots of food, relaxing, and fun. We were at an all-inclusive resort. We spent time on the beach and in the pool, reading and relaxing. One day we went on a Jeep tour around the island that included snorkeling, a visit to Mayan ruins, a tour of the tequila factory, a trip to a lighthouse, and lunch. We met a very nice young couple from Boston, also on their honeymoon.
We also signed up for a horseback ride through the jungle. This was the funniest part of the trip. The "jungle" turned out to be a slow, hot ride down a busy street, with a little foliage off to the side. Every once in a while we'd detour off the road through some bushes, then back onto the road. lol
We spent a day in town, where Scott got his Hard Rock Cozumel shirt, and we found some small gifts. We treated ourselves to massages at the spa, and indulged in plenty of food at the buffet!
The most stressful part of the trip was the day we were leaving, when I accidentally left my wedding rings behind. We were on our way to the airport when I realized I didn't have them, and I panicked, and made the driver turn around. Thankfully they were still on the bed, where I had taken them off to put on some lotion. No one had been in to clean the room yet. I burst into tears with relief.
When we got to the airport, Scott realized he hadn't kept his immigration form. We were sent to the immigration office with a form that was completely in Spanish. When we tried to explain that we didn't understand what it was asking for, they tried to send us to a different office. Scott finally just filled in his name and passport number (we have no idea if this is what the form asked for). They didn't even glance at it, just stamped it and sent us on our way.
So we made it home, from the tropical breezes and high temps of Mexico, to the snow of Utah. From shorts and swimsuits to long pants and coats.

For all of you that made special arrangements to be here for the wedding, especially in these times of economic stress, we just can't thank you enough. The day would not have been the same without all of your love and support. We'll continue to keep you posted as we build our lives and family together.
